Puzzlers, Part Four



I saw this yesterday and since I had my camera at work, I just had to sneak into the bathroom with it and take this photo. [Nothing can prepare you for how conspicuous you feel trying to take a picture in the bathroom.]

Puzzling first is the sanitary napkin wrapper that is taped to the trash dealie. Hmm.

But that's not the real puzzler. You can't see it very well but the little sign on the trash door is actually on all the trash cans in all the restrooms where I work. It pictures a razor, a nail and an Xacto knife blade and says, "No sharps disposal. Please dispose of in the biocontainer." Okay. I'm all the time finding myself with a pocket full of unwanted nails here at work, and the very first place I think of getting rid of them is the restroom trash cans. WTF??!!

the puzzling part is, is that SOMEONE at SOME POINT must have put something sharp in the trash can, in order for them to have to put up a freakin notice!!
and the taped up sanitary napkin thingy? that is the most puzzling part to me. i mean, they taped it TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE TRASH CAN, which frankly seems like more work than actually putting it IN the trash can.
people are weirdos.

I'm guessing you don't work at a hospital or medical facility? That's the only thing I can think of with the sharps warning on the wall...or there are a lot of stray carpenters walking around.

Hmmmmm...and I'm thinking most items that go into THOSE containers are biohazards.

EWWWWWWWWW. (Sorry about my sick humor.)

I sell insurance. It could be the stray carpenters, though - this is a new building.

Well...in case of multi-tasking, a quick shaving of legs while you while away the way in there...

Ok, I laughed harder at the thought of standing OUTSIDE of the stall while the camera flashed away from the inside. What in the HECK can she be photographing in there?

In your honor, I will post a toilet pic on my blog next.

I bet they ordered medical trash dispenser instead of "regular" ones. When we remodeled our offices we were consulted about ladies room bins & machines. I remember there being one like yours listed. Imagine how many people have sat there and wondered WTF! (Probably, not with a camera!)

DECISIONS, DECISIONS . . . Should I take my camera so I can post something on the web, or should I take my scotch tape dispenser so I can post something inside the stall . . . either item might raise the eyebrows of observers as you enter the ladies' room.
